Overview

Overview

Blass Shiraz is a plush, medium-bodied red wine with aromas of dark plums, mulberries and blueberries, and gentle notes of cedary spice. The palate is perfectly balanced with rich, fleshy fruit, subtle creamy oak and fine, velvety tannins. Founder’s Original Blend is a tribute to Wolf Blass’ inaugural 1966 blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. This innovative blend caused a sensation, cementing Wolf’s reputation as a master blender.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Rich aromas of blackberry and mulberry are enhanced with warm spice, distinctive Langhorne Creek regional notes of eucalypt and mint, and subtle touches of mocha oak.

Flavours and Palate

Smooth, plush and flavorsome, with a generous, medium to full-bodied palate. The harmonious blend of varieties, with subtle oak handling, results in a beautifully balanced wine with soft, ripe tannins and rich, lingering berry flavours. 27% was matured with American and French oak for up to 12 months to enhance texture and complexity

Viticulture

Viticulture

Higher than average rainfall through winter and spring resulted in good soil moisture profiles to start the season. Predominantly mild summer conditions and a warm, dry autumn allowed for slow, moderate ripening. This led to high quality wines with bright, vibrant fruit, great flavour development and varietal definition
